At the University of Denver, we offer the training and amenities to energize your graduate experience and help you develop into a professional scientist.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Denver offers programs leading to MA, MS or PhD degree in chemistry.

Our faculty members actively involve students in research programs supported with more than $1.5 million in annual funding from federal agencies, state governments and private industries. In our programs, you will enjoy the benefits of a friendly, personalized learning environment that offers nationally competitive and extremely productive research opportunities.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has much to offer a graduate student: close and frequent student-faculty interaction; an integrated program of courses; and excellent equipment and facilities including 500 MHz NMR, single-crystal X-ray diffraction, multiple EPR spectrometers, ICP-mass spectrometer, photon counting lifetime fluorescence, nanosecond laser flash photolysis, aerosol particle monitoring spectrometer, and fluorescence microscopy.
Faculty research interests encompass biophysical, organic, analytical and environmental chemistry and biochemistry. The department's relatively small size allows a broader, more interdisciplinary approach than in large departments. Our instructional format merges traditional disciplines into interdisciplinary courses that more closely reflect current trends in chemistry.
